Listening to it now, taking notes for a review later. A pretty cool first track. It's kind of like Nightmare but with more punch.

"Listening to it now, taking notes for a review later. A pretty cool first track. It's kind of like Nightmare but with more punch."


are we listening to the same album. the first song was like shit was being poured down into my earhole. the awful cheesy synth in the background, the uninspired riff that sounds like a 15 year old who's just learning how to play made up. i mean. even the solo was awful. and matt sounds like shit. band should have quit after rev died tbh not that the s/t was any good

Sixth track is hilarious. It can't decide if it's a Nothing Else Matters ripoff or November Rain ripoff.

"through the ages of time i've been known for my hate" -M. Shadows.

Fuck this album. A7x were always cheesy but at least City of Evil and Waking the Fallen sounded like they were trying to be awesome. Even that horrible self-titled album had more effort and thought put into it than this.

Hearing the second half, is better than the first part. Not the worst album of this year. Just an average record, will be a 2,5-3.

yeah a7x is the cool band to hate, so no matter how good or bad the album is it will always get a poor rating from some people who try to be cool. anyway i havent heard this yet, but is the rest of the album at least more interesting than the title track?

Pretty annoyed by all these comments. They're trying to sound like Metallica and Iron Maiden. Every piece of music is inspired by others. Pretty dumb to hate an album because a band wants to sound like Metallica. Honestly, this is maybe my favorite album that attempts to recapture an old school metal feel. Cheesy and poorly executed at times for sure, but overall, I largely respect the approach of this album. Half the time its bland as hell, but there are some great tracks on here.

I listened to four songs so far. Stylistically, it seems like City of Evil without the metalcore
influence and with much simpler drum work. It isn't awful, but as soon as a song ends, I immediately
forget what it sounded like.

My overall thought on it is that it's a step in a different direction. They decided to try something different, and I have to give them credit. Requiem and Planets are easily the best songs on the album.

I thought all their albums up to this were "okay" and undeserving of most of the hate they got. Shit, I even liked the self-titled.

But this whole thing was just a notch below everything else they've done. Even if the second half of the album is better than the first it's not saying much

Granted I listened to this thing out of a dead sleep, but I couldn't help but be unimpressed on my first play through. I understand they wanted a more stripped down, bare bones, classic metal album which they did deliver on, but unfortunately no matter how well you do that you can't match other work you've done that's so much more technical and complex.

This albums a complete snoozefest, had more fun listening to Wretched and Divine, thats saying something! I mean their self-titled wasn't good either, but at least it was a somewhat enjoyable listen. Waking The Fallen/City Of Evil were awesome albums, they had something going for them, but this is just a disgraceful parody to metal. sigh...
